Very comfortable. It did feel like though whenever Pony made mistakes Davy capitalised on them.

More defensive player won, as usual in this shit slow court era.

It looked like the match was always on Davydenko's hand, usually on his mistakes. Delpo played good enough and made the most of his opportunities, but he will need to rise his level if he wants to make a deep run.

Not a great match. Del Potro just much more consistent off the ground and has a bigger serve; Davydenko was the aggressor for the most part taking the ball early as always, but he has lost his consistency and eventually made an error as Del Potro kept getting the ball back with power and length - also he got no free points at all from serve. Even while a break down to start both sets, JMDP never felt under any pressure given the weakness of Davy's serve.

I don't like to see Del Potro slicing all the time off the BH since it's a sign he's still dealing with left wrist pain, but if there's one silver lining of his left wrist issues is that his slice has improved tremendously, it's actually a pretty good and reliable shot now. He should beat Phau now, as well as Haas/Almagro, let's see how he does in the QF assuming there are no hiccups before.

Glad that Delpo managed to get through this match seemingly comfortably. Didn't get to watch it though as I was stuck in a room full of Murray fans, so had to watch that match.

David Ferrer - Tommy Haas - Jo-Wilfried Tsonga

Andy Roddick - Juan Carlos Ferrero - Mardy Fish

Del Potro has turned into a rather negative player. Cannot see him winning anything of significance if he does not play his more natural offensive game.

Del Potro was never a particularly offensive player in the mould of a Tsonga or Berdych. He just hits the ball so ridiculously hard that he often appears to be attacking when he really isn't. His main strength has always been using his firepower in a way that makes his sluggish movement least likely to get exploited. He does need to find a better balance though, I'd agree there - one of the main differences from his current self to his 2009 self is that he rarely ever goes down the line in rallies these days, he used to turn tons of rallies around with a powerful down the line.

Some good comments. Do you think it is a confidence issue with him? His unwillingness to go for his shots on a more consistent basis I mean. Regardless, he certainly has a more developed and sophisticated game than he is given credit for. With regard to this tournament, I just hope the Argentine and the Scot can win through to the quarters so we can finally see them play again.
